AVerMedia Launches Volar USB TV Tuner StickAVerTV Hybrid Volar MAX is a long name to describe the multitude of functions the USB TV tuner does. The USB based TV tuner stick has the ability to receive HDTV, Analog TV and FM radio on any Windows XP or Vista computer or laptop.
Unless you need specific subscription channels, you no longer have to put up with cable or satellite costs to get the High Definition TV everyone is craving for. The AverTV Hybrid Volar MAX does it all. For video quality, playback and speed consider this:
“The AVer MeidaCenter provides users more joy from Clear QAM digital cable TV. Advanced real-time H.264 recording compression significantly reduces CPU loading and the amount of hard disk space needed for recording. The optional 320Ã—240 resolution enables users to save and playback video on an iPod.”Don’t hold doubt either, the AVerTV Hybrid Volar MAX can truly present the details of HDTV in 720p/1080i resolution. With an exclusive Vista MCE Video Gaming Plug-in, the AverTV Hybrid Volar MAX resolves the latency problem when playing video games on Vista MCE to synchronize the video and audio of video games.
Now you do need to change your habits or modify them to include capture of TV on your computer or laptop, rather than getting spoon-feed from a traditional TV setup, but isn’t cost savings worth it? Compare the $79 price tag of the AverTV Hybrid Volar MAX to that of your digital cable bill and you’ll make the switch to USB TV dongles.AVerMedia is sending us a unit for review, so I’ll report back on the findings.
